State of the Art: November 2019

I almost can’t believe November is over. This month has felt like a year with all the things that have been packed into it. I had my top wisdom teeth out, I’m working on a secret project, I got to speak about my book and vulnerability on the internet at the Durham “What’s Your Story” event, I had family issues out the wazoo, I met the director of The Amirah Project to discuss my work with mental health (and possibly human trafficking education) in comics and illustration, Aiden and I threw our second annual Wolfenoot party, I made a Gumroad account and put up my first zines, I opened commissions for the first time, and I worked on revamping my social media presence on Twitter, Instagram, and now Tumblr as well!

Next month seems like it’s going to be a similar amount of crazy. But hey, I’m going to be getting my very first tattoo for my birthday! I’m very excited. It’s very me.

Overall though, I feel like this has been a very creatively-satisfying month! I got a lot done, and I’m happy about that. I’ve also been more consistent with my Patreon updates, which I intend on getting increasingly better at as time goes on. I have to remember it’s a growing process and that I’m not going to be a master of social media and freelancing overnight. It takes hard work, and I intend to work hard!
